2011 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Josh Selby


Position: Point Guard

Size: 6-3, 194

School: Kansas, Freshman


Strengths:
  • Explosive athlete
  • High riser at the rim
  • Strong finisher
  • Three-point shooter
  • Catch and shoot ability; terrific rhythm shooter
  • Free throw shooting
  • Quick first step
  • Vision on the break
  • Speed in the open floor
  • Solid rebounding guard
  • Active defender



    Weaknesses:
  • Learning to become a true point guard
  • Undersized to be an NBA shooting guard
  • Turnover prone
  • Sometimes too reckless in getting to the basket
  • Experience

    Summary: Josh Selby suffered through a disappointing freshman season at Kansas which really hurt his NBA Draft stock. However, he has re-gained his mojo a bit during draft workouts and showed teams the potential that he possesses. There are still questions about position he will play at the next level and it may take him a year or two to find his niche, but he should be taken in the mid-teens to early 20s.

    Player Comparison: Randy Foye. Foye is a combo guard with great athleticism who has yet to truly find his role in the NBA. He has not been effective enough as a true point guard, but is an undersized two guard. Selby has many of the same skills as Foye and faces the same challenge of figuring out which position he will play.
